GOD'S UNIQUE WAY OF CLEANSING HIS VESSEL MAKING IT FIT FOR USAGE

Naturally when we think about cleansing our selves of the mess within, we will consider detox or enema and maybe we will take a laxative, assuring ourselves the mes has been alleviated and we continue about our ways of living, recontaminating our bodies with toxins and bacteria, BUT when God cleans up the vessel of the mess, he has a unique way of doing it, he CONVICTS, RESTRICTS AND ASK YOU TO COMMIT.

CONVICTIONS

When we conceder our conscience being convinced that we aren't living as we should, we then come to the conclusion that we are sinners and need to turn from our wicked ways and are in need of saving / savior

When our hearts have been seared and we become knowledgeable of the fact that the payment for doing wrong is the lost of life, and that we are rewarded with life eternal when we accept the life giver and do what he requires of us to gain his rewards and gifts. Still you are probably wondering what exactly do we mean by the term conviction?

Conviction means " the act or process of convincing," " the state of being convinced," or " a fixed or strong belief." By biblical conviction we mean convictions or beliefs derived from and based on a commitment to scripture, the Bible. God's Holy Word, it is the absolute index for the whole of our lives-faith and practice.

RESTRICTIONS

2Corinthians 7:1

When we disobey, fail to follow instruction or overlook Biblical restrictions that leads us to Kingdom Citizenship we become the convicts, because of our failure to comply to the rules / laws laid in front of our eyes, the constitution for our reading ( Bible, Scriptures )

When we think about biblical restrictions, the Old Testament comes to mind, mainly the Mosaic Laws, I know you might say we are not bound by the laws of Moses " BUT " there're real examples of what we are not supposed to do as children of the most high / citizens of the kingdom.

Example; we are doing a terrible job when it comes to dietary restrictions Leviticus 11:4

What are some of the biblical restrictions that remind you, that you lack commitment?

COMMITMENT

Commit therefore your ways unto the Lord and allow him to direct your path. Did you know that in commitment you will get action?Proverbs 16:3, Psalms 37:5

Commitment is something we are good at in theory " BUT " as the old saying goes, action speaks louder than words, we say we want to change and live our lives pleasing unto the Lord " BUT " when it comes to doing it we tend to say God knows my heart and it's the heart God wants to change. Change is something we only talk about, we are committed to doing wrong and that's what we talk about. How does that sound, what is the theory behind that? We continue to do the wrong, we want to commit to change " BUT " where is the repentance

REPENTANCE

Repentance is more than simply acknowledging wrong doings, it's a commitment to change our minds and hearts, which includes turning away from sin, and we know sin is an immoral act considered to be a transgression against Devine law. Sin can also be viewed as any thought or action that endangers it's ideal relationship between an individual and God; James1:15 says we are / have committed sin when our desires are conceived. When we recognize our transgression and our sins have caught up to us, we tend to have some sort of remorse and vow to commit ourselves to a change of ways, maybe even commit ourselves unto the Lord, seeking forgiveness of our wrong with the intent never to repeat those actions again " BUT " will you be committed to the vows you make or is that something to do because your sin have caught up to you? Have you ever heard " Godly sorrow worketh repentance "?

GOD'S unique way of cleansing his vessel making it fit for usage

Repentance is the utmost / primary catalyst to cleansing ourselves of the mess within. We are reminded of God's requirements which leads to our convictions, some are responsive to the convictions and are remorseful, weep and cry for relief from the binds which hold us captive to sin, " BUT " when it comes to committing ourselves to the Kingdom of God, becoming ambassadors for Christ, pledging our allegiance to the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, the savior of this wrenched world spreading the good news of the kingdom through out all the Earth, admitting to our transgression and having a desire to comply to the required necessary changes needed to be used as a vessel for the kingdom. The choice is yours. Choose to become a vessel meet for the usage of Good / God
